Yellows, greens & a few little things in between...




Beautiful bright colours of a Cape York Wet Season.
I thought I might share some photos of a the 
hidden aesthetics we discovered on our bush walk.

Exploring the forest (the old Coen Road)...



Where life is abundant...



And the trees are tall & green...



All things unusual can be found...



Every little thing is thriving, regenerating, living...
 
Apart from exploring the forest in the rain, this week was my first week back at work since Christmas holidays. 
I had lots of catching up to do, helping organize a Council meeting and working a 10 hour day with not even a break for a cup of tea! 

The highlight of the week was a visit from Tara & Alex from 
who led a 3 day workshop with the elders, kids & youth from the community. The rhythms of the drumming circle brought so much life into the kids, sending them into a trance at time. It was incredible to observe how natural drumming and polyrhythms were to them, and how easily they picked up jembe techniques. It was satisfying to see the kids & youth channeling all their energy into something challenging, productive & creative. 
I plan to work with Tara in the near future to organize a drum making workshop in the community and to devise a performance for the Laura Dance Festival this year.



I hope your weekend is relaxing as ours...
A big happy birthday to my beautiful little sister 
who turned 19 on Friday! 

For now loads of love & light xox
